Over the past few months, I’ve been an experi-petal machine. Is that a word? Nope. But I like it.
This has all happened on Instagram. I’ve discovered a fascination for florals and reignited a passion for paint. I finally feel as if I’m ‘honing’ my style. Alongside my fashion inspired portrait illustrations, I’m creating a body of floral imagery which will soon be adorning my Etsy shop – a goal that has been along time in the making.
To celebrate my new discoveries and my obsession for these little beauties, I’ve set myself a challenge. To take a flower and style it, 5 ways. This is my own unique little challenge. It helps me hone my skill, think outside of the proverbial box, stay fresh and possibly make some awesome art in the process.
So for my first 5 Ways with Flowers, I’m experimenting with a gorgeous blue delphinium – also known as ‘Blue Nile’. You can follow my progress on Instagram by looking up the hashtag #5wayswithflowers.
If you want to set me a challenge and have a particular flower or plant in mind – be it fresh, dried, paper, fabric, please do let me know. I thrive on creative challenges.
